Parents line up in last ditch effort to secure Hatchimal toy before Christmas

-
“It was pretty cold, but we brought blankets -- we dressed warm.”
 
This family woke up in the middle of the night to ensure they were in line at this Glendale Toys 'R Us to get their hands on the 'must have' toy of the season!
 
Stores are having a tough time keeping them on their shelves.
 
The Hatchimal egg eventually hatches into a fuzzy little critter -- that you can interact with, play games with -- and talk to -- think Tomigotchi meets Furby.
 
“We tried on Black Friday and we were unsuccessful.”
 
At 6:30 a.m. early Sunday morning, Toys 'R Us employees handed out tickets to the lucky people in line, good for one Hatchimal they had in stock.
 
Then -- when doors opened at 8 a.m. -- it was on!
 
“We got what we wanted!!!”
 
“It's fun for us -- we enjoy coming out here.”
 
The toy retails for about $60 -- but some people are selling their Hatchimal online for three to four times that price!
 
For those in line Sunday morning -- they say it will all be worth it come Christmas morning.
 
“It's really worth it to make a kid smile for Christmas.”
 
So for those of you looking to get your hands on one -- those we talked to out at Toys 'R Us -- say keep checking with the stores and be prepared to wake up extra early to get it.
